The epic 'Grant Partita' Serenade in this all-Mozart affair for winds and piano.
About The Music
Considered Mozart’s greatest work for winds, the ‘Gran Partita’ Serenade for 13 musicians is as captivating today as it was groundbreaking at its first performance. To perform this momentous work Omega Ensemble has secured the A-team of Australian wind players, including principal musicians from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and Opera Ballet Orchestra. This all-Mozart affair also includes the delightful Quintet for Piano and Winds and the ever-popular Piano Sonata No. 11 in A Major.
